media thoughts

good dad: “Obviously, this return would be much less than what the Blackhawks originally expected a few weeks ago, but it is actually a little better than what had been rumored in recent days. Even the possibility of him becoming the first would be a minor victory given Davidson’s lack of influence.”

larry brooks: “The Rangers will not be able to carry more than 21 players in the remainder of the regular season. The list includes an additional D. If an F is injured, NYR would have to come up short by one game and then call out F making less than $850,000 under emergency conditions. There is no cap in the playoffs.”
